Abstract:

ThermAvant Technologies, LLC and University of Texas at Arlington propose to design, model, fabricate and empirically test conformal fitting cylindrical energy storage heat cooling packages. ThermAvant will optimize cylindrical battery array cooling solutions that balance size, weight, coolant flow rate and pressure drops, maximum temperatures, thermal responsiveness, and temperature uniformity. Two different approaches will be evaluated: micro-channel single-phase cold plates; and cold plates with two-phase super-thermally conductive oscillating heat pipes (OHPs). A number of innovative manufacturing techniques will be evaluated and compared to conventional micro-channel forming and sealing processes. University of Texas at Arlington will provide the high fidelity electrical and thermal test facilities to evaluate thermal solutions'effectiveness in cooling real-world cylindrical battery cells.
